More than 4 weeks availability
Based on OSS records only recently released to US National Archives, and on evidence from British archival sources, this is a thoroughly researched study of the Office of Strategic Services in London. The OSS was a critical liaison and operational outpost for American intelligence during World War II. Dr MacPherson puts the activities of the OSS into the larger context of the Anglo-American relationship and the various aspects of intelligence theory, while examining how a modern American intelligence capability evolved.
Nelson MacPherson is an analyst in Canada's Department of National Defence. He holds a PhD in History from the University of Toronto and is an Adjunct Fellow with the Centre for Military and Strategic Studies, University of Calgary.
